Re: River surfing:Setting the record straight.

The surfriders in Munich have really taken their Isar River surfing to a high level. You will often see various riders show up with their vehicles full of slats of timber that is then used to tailor the wave shape.

Re: River surfing:Setting the record straight.

DP, Suggest trying to contact DeSoto Brown, Historian of the Bishop Museum. He also contributes to The Surf Blurb where you could also pose the question. Another two places to make inquiries include Swaylocks (surf board building site) and KSUSA (kneeboard surfing site), both of which have a lot of ...

I have made several attempts of saving "easy to read" searchable back-ups of this forum. Along the way (yesterday) there was a hiccup when going to phpMyAdmin that runs the SQL database (I think that is stated correctly).

Transition to New Forum Software, This Forum's Data May Die

My hosting service provider recently informed me that my current version scripting software, PHP 5.x is being discontinued and that I must update it to PHP v7.x (so it will move to v7.2). The current version of the paipo forums software, phpBB 3.0.14 will not run on PHP v7.x, meaning that this forum...

Re: Question about skegs

You might want to test out some screw threw style fins used in the kite boarding community. You might also find this type of skeg for wake boarding and other board-riding communities.

Campsites were jammed beyond capacity and the mess was over-flowing restrooms, walking through mounds of soiled TP, etc., by late-Saturday afternoon.

Kage is correct in my wanting to make a reservation at a high reliability of being open campground come October and he is also accurate in noting that reservations are on a rolling 6-month schedule, so this Friday, April 5th is opening date for campsite reservations on Saturday, October 5th. And the...

Re: Paipo Gathering - Sa/Su/Mo, Oct 5-7, 2019 El Capitan SP

Not sure about the current situation but the last couple of trips/events (2015, 2017), and last year (2018), there were a number of issues with most of those locations having to do with campsite closures due to lack of water, closed facilities, closed roads/wash outs... and in 2013 it was a real mes...

Re: Paipo Gathering - Sa/Su/Mo, Oct 5-7, 2019 El Capitan SP

For personal reasons I am already locked into other plans for my cross-country road trip. Popularity has declined? Well, it isn't a Swaylocks super event that is for sure! And a lot of people just don't like to plan or commit that far in advance. Or, maybe because it isn't the very best week-end in ...

Re: Newport Paipo

Hi John, What are the dimensions of the board (length, width, thickness) and how tall is the skeg? The Newport Paipo you have is probably early-1970s vintage at which time most of the product line form Newport Paipo had evolved from paipo/bellyboard prone surfing boards to kneeboards, hence the spoo...

Re: paipo choppy big waves, make it

I would still lean towards a deep "V" nose hull, similar to a boat. As a matter of fact I would rely a lot on boat design. You still might skip a bit but nothing like a flat bottom or concave moving through or over cross chop.

Re: Fins

Pes, my buddy that loaned and encouraged me to try out the DaFins during a surfing session together recommended giving the fins a chance to "modify my kick stroke" and to just "feel the flow." He was right... the first 5 to 10 minutes were a lot different than my Vipers kick but then the feel starte...
